Tuberous sclerosis, angiofibromas  - face

Overview

These red (erythematous) elevated skin lesions (papules) are tumors made-up of fibrous tissue (angiofibroma) and occur with tuberous sclerosis. Tuberous sclerosis affects both the nervous system and the skin (neurocutaneous) and may also produce other skin lesions including shagreen spots, ash-leaf macula, and periungual fibromas (a type of skin tumor).
